About the event
Have you always wanted to learn how to knit socks but think they may be too complicated? In this workshop, Adite will teach you all the skills you need to knit adult-sized socks on magic loop. You will learn a new technique each week on one sock and can choose whether to make the pair as homework or wait until the completion of the course. By the end of the third session you will have completed at least one sock and will have the confidence and skills to create its pair.
Session 1: Cast on, cuff ribbing and leg
Session 2: Heel flap, heel turn and gusset
Session 3: Foot and toe decreases (Kitchener Stitch)
The workshop price includes all materials you need to create a pair of adult sized socks including: a simple sock pattern, a set of circular needles, a darning needle, stitch markers and a progress keeper and 100g of DK sock yarn - other yarns are available for an additional charge.
